TONALITY, a new exhibit by Manhattan Beach textile artist Diana Flynn, is opening on Friday at Culture Brewing Co. The opening event will take place on May 5 from 5:00 to 9:00 p.m. The exhibit will be on display through May 31.
According to Flynn, TONALITY is an exploration of color and texture as a way of creating balance. Each piece, made out of painted canvas fabric strips, has a rhythmic quality - moving between wide and narrow, smooth and frayed and hard and soft.
“Creating several pieces as a collection has been an amazing opportunity to work with color in more depth," said Flynn. "As the project progressed each color fed into the next and it felt exciting to let the process unfold organically.”
The exhibit is one in a series at Culture Brewing Co., which is "committed to the idea that art, community spaces and beer can bring people together." Culture Brewing features a new artist monthly.
Though her creative instincts were apparent from a young age, Flynn's early career was spent in technology marketing. She went through several business endeavors before being drawn to the creative community in Southern California.
Her love of textiles and color became her focus as she tried her hand at block printing and tapestries, which then evolved into mix media fabric work. Her current process of tearing, painting and arranging canvas strips is a "laborious" process of intuition, destruction, contemplation, resolve, refinement and acceptance.
Flynn said that she is always pursuing balance in her work, which can often be defined by using color, spacing, pattern, texture and dimension.
She is a current member of the South Bay Artist Collective in Hermosa Beach, where she said she has found the varied perspective of other artists and art enthusiasts to be "endlessly instructive."
Culture Brewing Co. is located at 327 Manhattan Beach Blvd. The opening reception will be held from 5:00 to 9:00 p.m.
To purchase artwork, contact Diana Flynn Designs.
(Editor's note: Flynn was previously featured in Manhattan Beach News for creating a colorful display of dog poop bags at a dog park in Manhattan Beach during COVID.)

The Manhattan Beach City Council this week honored longtime resident Bettelu Beverly by adjourning its meeting in her honor.
Beverly, a longtime Manhattan Beach resident who led three generations of the Beverly family, passed away last month just a week before her 98th birthday.
"She was a true matriarch here in Manhattan Beach whose reach went well beyond the Beverly family," said Councilmember Steve Napolitano at the meeting.
Beverly was the husband of Robert "Bob" Beverly, former Manhattan Beach mayor, state assemblymember and state senator; and mother to Barbara, Bill, Bob Jr.(owner of Shellback Tavern), and Brian Beverly; and "G-Ma" to 10 grandchildren.
"She loved meeting new people and always found the good in everyone," wrote her son Bob in a tribute. "She rarely talked about herself and never talked behind people’s backs. Instead she bragged about the successes of whoever was not in the conversation, and was particularly proud of her grandchildren and their many accomplishments."
Elizabeth Louise "Bettelu" Wiesel was born on April 17, 1925 in Pittsburgh, PA. She was raised in Mount Lebanon, where she attended elementary school and high school. Her father was the organist and choir director at Second Presbyterian Church of Pittsburgh.
She met Robert Graham Beverly, a former high school tennis partner of her oldest brother James, while he was in the Marine Corps at Camp Pendleton.
"There have been more than a few stories how it all happened but the last one was that they ran into each other walking down Wilshire Blvd. in West L.A. and he invited her out for a drink," according to Bob Jr. "Dad was only 20 so he had to fake a call pretending he was his own Marine Corps sergeant to vouch that he was 21."
Bettelu and Bob Sr. married in 1946. They purchased their first home in Manhattan Beach in 1951 on 31st St. in the Tree Section. In the late 1950's they moved to 27th and Alma, and in 1962 they purchased their final residence at 27th and Highland.
Bettelu was one of the Neptunian Woman's Club's longest-serving members, having joined in 1960. She also owned the former Lemon Tree gift shop at 12th and Highland Ave. along with her close friends Pat Keene, Kathy Fels and Jean Coulston.
Bob Jr. noted that over the years she worked very hard in her husband's successful political campaigns for Manhattan Beach City Council (1958), State Assembly (1966) and State Senate (1976). She also served on the Commission of the Californias, establishing working relationships between California and Baja California Mexico.
In her spare time, she played piano, created mosaics, loved travel, and collected folk art.
Last summer, she was able to fulfill a dream of many years when she returned to Pittsburgh to see and hear the organ that her father had played back in the 1920s, and to attend services at his church.
She passed away on April 11, 2023, just one week shy of her 98th birthday. She was laid to rest alongside her beloved Bob, to whom she had been married for 63 years.

MANHATTAN BEACH, CA — A First Republic Bank branch in Manhattan Beach was among 10 in Los Angeles and Orange counties that became a JP Morgan Chase Bank overnight after regulators seized First Republic in what's being called the second-largest bank failure in U.S. history.
The change stems from a fast-paced series of events over the weekend, but local customers were being assured Monday morning that their money was safe. The bank was the 14th largest U.S. bank with 84 locations across eight states, the New York Times reported.
"JPMorgan will protect all deposits, insured and uninsured, bringing our financial strength, capabilities and capital to support First Republic's clients and the U.S. banking system," Chase officials said in a statement. "JPMorgan Chase has been a leader in financial services for more than 200 years, and we look forward to continuing to serve you and be deserving of your trust and business."
Chase noted that all banking offices will be operating as usual, and customers can continue to manage their funds through www.FirstRepublic.com or on the bank's mobile app.
First Republic was closed by the California Department of Financial Protection and Innovation, which appointed the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation as receiver. The FDIC, in turn, entered into an agreement to sell the bank's assets to JPMorgan Chase.
As a result, the First Republic Bank branches opened Monday morning as branches of JPMorgan Chase, including the branch at 601 N Sepulveda Booulevard in Manhattan Beach.
First Republic’s shareholders and debt holders will be wiped out in the deal, according to the Times.
First Republic Bank had approximately $229.1 billion in total assets and $103.9 billion in total deposits as of April 13, 2023, according to the FDIC.
First Republic Bank was based in San Francisco. It is the third and biggest U.S. bank to fail this year, following the collapse of Silicon Valley Bank in March and Signature Bank. First Citizens Bank eventually acquired Silicon Valley Bank and a subsidiary of New York Community Bank bought most of Signature Bank after they were taken into receivership by the FDIC.
First Republic Bank had 7,213 employees as of 2022 and served customers in Connecticut, Florida, Massachusetts, New York, Oregon, Wyoming in addition to California.
On Friday, shares of First Republic Bank stock closed at $3.51, down more than 97% to date. Trading of the bank's shares was halted on the New York Stock Exchange several dozen times last week because of its value was so volatile. The bank announced on April 24 it lost $100 billion worth of deposits during the first three months of the year.
Gov. Gavin Newsom issued a statement saying, "In close partnership and coordination with the FDIC, California DFPI took decisive and critical action to stabilize the situation, avert layoffs, and protect Californians. The swift action by FDIC to secure a purchaser for the bank will protect depositors, including uninsured depositors."
The failure of First Republic is second in size only to the 2008 collapse of Washington Mutual, which was also taken over by JPMorgan Chase.
President Joe Biden, speaking to reporters outside the White House Monday, sought to assure the public that bank funds are safe.
"Regulators have taken action to facilitate the sale of First Republic Bank and ensure that all depositors are protected, and the taxpayers are not on the hook," he said. ``These actions are going to make sure that the banking system is safe and sound and that includes protecting small businesses across the country who need to make payroll for workers.
``Let me be very clear, while depositors are being protected, shareholders are losing their investments, and critically, taxpayers are not on the hook, as I said earlier."
